The Henry

Henry Beaufort runners Cross Country success

Katie Allen and Ava Berglin represent Eastleigh and Winchester in County Cross County Championship

The school would like to offer a big well done to Katie Allen and Ava Berglin who represented the Eastleigh and Winchester District in the County Cross County Championship on Tuesday 17th March.

With over 100 runners and a very large field, the experience was quite daunting but both girls did brilliantly. Ava finished in the top 50, and Katie Allen finished 13th which means she has now been selected for the Hampshire Cross Country Team and will compete in the Inter Counties - an amazing achievement!

Katie went on to take part in the South East Schools Inter Counties competition in Kent on Saturday 28th March, representing Hampshire. It was an incredibly hilly and windy course with an extremely strong field of very talented runners from Sussex, Surrey, Essex, Kent and Hampshire. Katie did exceptionally well, finishing in the top half of the field despite suffering a spiked foot, which ripped her spikes. Katie very much enjoyed the whole experience – a big well done to both girls and good luck to Katie in the next round.
